Oh, Woodworking Is Just A Little Hobby? Try Rebuilding a 1923 Hot Rod

by Mark Stephens | February 2nd, 2013

When so many woodworking projects are launched out of a simple needs – like the need for a cabinet in the laundry room  or out of desire to try that neat looking jewelry box you saw in a magazine, or as a response to your grown child’s Big News that you’ll soon be a grandparent and-oh-by-the-way-would-you-build-a-crib – I’m sure we’d all like to take on a project like this.  I’m talking about a project that, if it works out,  goes vrooom-vrooom and would impress the old high school buds.

Richard Todd, a customer to our Tucson store, just spent the last 8 months working on this beauty. He rebuilt the cab out of ash and birch.

The pictures say it so much better, here you go:

    This is one cool project. Did you build the body and chassis, too? What kind of finish did you use? I assuming you used a finish with a UV blocker in it. You know, there is a cruise here in Detroit called the Woodward Dream Cruise with all kind of cars cruising up and down the street. You should bring it over here. People will like it. And I might get a ride in it, too! Seriously, though, very nice project. I wish I had the skills to build something like this.
